Blog Challenge: Write a Six-Word Memoir

Write Your Memoir in Six Words

Proposed by the online storytelling magazine, SMITH, writing a six-word memoir is a creative challenge. Try it and share your 6 word memoir by posting it (under the name of your choice) as a comment to this blog challenge:
    "Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in six words. The result was "For sale: baby shoes, never used."

    Since SMITH celebrates the personal side of storytelling, our twist on this classic concept is the six-word memoir--the short, short true story of your life.

    It could be the title of your autobiography, or maybe your epitaph. Shorter than haiku and meatier that a one-liner, it truly makes you take stock of who you are. Try it."
